Kelly said contact Lippert and Lippert responded that FR needs to supply the information.

I also contacted Pullrite. They sent me photos of 3 possible Trailair models that FR is using for that trailer with the appropriate capture plate model # for each.

Seems like it would have been easiest for FR to just get a hold of someone at the factory and say, "hey what model of Trailair pin box do we put on the 34RL2's?". Maybe my mind works different than most.
Buy all three...send two back! lol

Yours obviously is a bad example because you have a local dealer who shouldn't be in the RV business to begin with and I don't care how long he has been in business. It's dealers like this (if your numbers are correct) that give a bad name to the business and create situations where people opt to travel out of state to purchase. I would have selected another brand from another local dealer before I would travel the distance you are proposing to save what at most should be the amount of the difference in freight. BTW if that dealer had sold that unit to you for a $29,000 profit the sales guy would have retired LOL. They are lucky if they net 5 to 6 thousand dollars on a unit of that kind. Unless someone just comes in and pays full sticker price in which case they have a huge party after work and laugh all the way to the bank.
OK, well it's clear that you know much more about my sales process and the prices than I do, so I will have to bow out.

Pretty sure I just figured it out. I did a Google photo search of "cedar creek trailair pin box" and compared the photos I found to that of the photos Pullrite sent me. Looks like capture plate #331758 is the one I need.

I bought 2 RVs from a dealer 43 miles away. They also get all the work I cannot or will not do. I buy at there store for a few pennies more. They know my name when I come in.
When I need something in a hurry they are on it. Normal maintenance an appointment is made and they get me in quickly. If you bought somewhere else they put you on the schedule with no priority. As expected and should be.
